Visitors from the Wales-Jamaica Exchange at the 2017 Eisteddfod

It was lovely to welcome 11 visitors from the Methodist Church of Jamaica to Wales during the summer as part of the Wales-Jamaica Youth Exchange. After spending time at Amelia Farm in the south, and working in children’s summer clubs, the group spent a weekend at a camp for young people from Synod Cymru and Wales Synod in the Abernant Centre, then a few days in Aberystwyth before coming to Anglesey and the National Eisteddfod.


The group was welcomed in the Churches’ Tent on the Eisteddfod field by Owain Morgan and Gruffydd Davies of Synod Cymru. Next, the group went on to spend a little time in Bangor before going to London to visit some of the historic sites of John Wesley and the Methodist Church, before flying home. Thanks be to God for an exchange visit that has enriched the life of the Wales Synod and Synod Cymru, and especially the lives of the young people who took part.
